St. John the Baptist Anglican church in Meols, Wirral was consecrated nearly 100 years ago in 1913. The heating system recently needed replacing. This involved the removal of a large, inefficient boiler, cast iron radiators and pipe work to be replaced by a more modern and economical arrangement. After taking advice from a church consultant heating engineer, the church committee elected HeatinGlobal the church heating company to install the new DRU gas wall heaters.
The existing radiators were replaced with nine DRU Kamara 16 powered flue gas wall heaters in the main church and one DRU Art balanced flue heater in the choir vestry. Kamara heaters are designed for very large, enclosed spaces such as a church building, with high heat outputs, forced air convection and 85% efficiency. Each heater operates at around 50p per hour, so the cost to the church for an average Sunday service is less than £10 in total – a massive saving on the previous system.
Churchwarden David Moss expressed his “delight at the quality of the HeatinGlobal’s workmanship and the courtesy shown to the church personnel during the completion of the contract”
